Burnley Change Their Twitter Header After Mikel Arteta's Comments And It's Pure Sh*thousery
Burnley have changed their Twitter header to a picture of long grass after Mikel Arteta's comments following the club's 0-0 draw at Turf Moor.
The Spaniard openly criticised the state of Burnley's pitch after their Premier League clash, blaming the length of the grass as a reason why Arsenal struggled to get a foot hold in the game.
"The conditions were difficult." he said in his post-match interview. "The grass was this long. They didn't put water on it and that is difficult to play football.
"I didn't water the grass yesterday at the training ground so I was expecting it but that doesn't make it easier to play.
"We adapted really well in some moments and in some others it wasn't the grass. What they do they do really well."
Arsenal didn't win today because the grass was too long, that's according to Arteta anyway.

Arteta: "The conditions were difficult the grass was long. They didn't put any water on it and that's not very helpful to play football. I didn't water the pitch yesterday in the training ground so was expecting it. That doesn't make it easier to play."

Burnley boss Sean Dyche was far from compassionate about Arteta's comments, and hit out at Arsenal's players for falling over throughout the tie.
"'It is lovely to watch when people are falling over, it is my favourite part," said Dyche.
"The game is in a fantastic state. No-one wants to address it apart from me, so I am absolutely happy with the state of the game."
And the club's Twitter account has also added fuel to the fire, updating their Twitter header to a picture of long grass; not to mention a clip during the fixture.
Arteta said the grass on Burnley's pitch was long and they've changed their header to this unannounced.
